Ma Bessie

Classic blues and jazz tunes from the inter-war years with a selection of original songs and hand-picked covers.


Event Details


Building on her passion for the Empress of the Blues, Julia Titus started to perform as Ma Bessie in mid-2015 to share the music of Bessie Smith and her contemporaries with a new generation of listeners.

Julia’s rich, warm vocal sound as Ma Bessie combines classic blues and jazz tunes from the inter-war years with a selection of original songs and hand-picked covers from the last 50 years of popular music.
